Successfully managing an auto complex that includes a sales and service center, a custom shop and a junkyard/parts facility keeps Andy Cohen working long hours. It also keeps him up after-hours worrying about maintaining the well-oiled operation. His father, Bobby, opened the junkyard years ago and still helps -- or so he thinks -- by running it when needed, but his laid-back personality often clashes with Andy's hard-charging style, making a volatile business even more challenging. "Junkyard Empire" follows how father and son work around their relationship dynamic to keep the family empire thriving. As they hunt valuable parts, scrap metal or potential high-end fabrication projects for clients, jack-of-all-trades Andy and semiretired Bobby know how to exploit every greasy part or burned-up engine.
